Story
Fifi is a Jack Russell mix girl that is young at just 2 years of age and weighing approximately 20 pounds.   Goodness what an up and down life she has already had with a few different homes, at least one litter of puppies born and definitely has felt the sadness of being abandoned.  She is still nervous around new and strange people but with some time and reassurance she can feel differently about herself and will know that strange people are there to take her away or harm her.  She is with a family who said a friend abandoned her with them and they reached out to Critter Cavalry Rescue to help find her a good and forever home.  We see this girl working beautifully with an early retired single woman who wants to be adored and have a snuggle bug like Fifi to live with every day.  We also see her as a companion to an empty nester couple who has a husband that will work slowly and patiently with Fifi’s trust issues with men. Someone has NOT been nice to her in the past.  It can be overcome with consistency and patience.  CCR has the training tools to show you how.  Fifi warms up fairly quickly to women and children.  This sweet Jack Russell mix girl has the JRT energy but that can be run off outside in a dog park or a fenced backyard at a home.  She’s very affectionate with people she is comfortable with and she enjoys cuddling under blankets. It can take her awhile to warm up to other dogs but she will.   She doesn’t ever start a fight but she does have boundaries and she likes to eat her dinner without other dogs close by.  She doesn’t like the foster cat, but has learned to tolerate her well and she’s settled in an environment at home she gets along well with other animals. She needs more leash training, but does generally well on walks.  We are not going to say that this girl is a cakewalk dog to adopt.  She is a dog that NEEDS someone to work with her quirks that humans created by keeping her off balance in her first years and never giving her any confidence that life was forever where she lived.  She is worth the true rescue effort to help her jump the hurdles that were thrown in front of her by wishy washy people who decided they didn’t want her anymore.  Handing her around left her unsure of things and people.  Sad. Sad.  Sad.   If you are interested in this beauty, please email Critter Cavalry Rescue at ccrnewengland@gmail.com   We have skilled trainers that can speak with you on the phone on tips to implement in working with her reassurance.  If you are local to Nashville, TN we have in person training available.  PLEASE NOTE:   Our dogs and cats are fostered in Tennessee and can transport weekly up to the Northeast region.  Request an application and learn more about Critter Cavalry at https://www.crittercavalry.com/adoption.February 20, 2024, 2:36 pm

Story
Tiny is a Jack Russel terrier, approximately seven years of age. He was adopted from a dog shelter in June 2023. Tiny had no previous background when he was adopted - age, behavior, or journey. The first few months it was rough because he bite and react aggressively when people would lean over him for pets, touch his food or keep a cage near him - he no longer does this. It seems he was punished frequently with cage time and unfairness rather than truly working with him. He has not been previously trained given he pees/poops randomly even when he’s been walked. He barks when cars/scooters/people pass by. Aside all this he has grown to be very sweet, he understands when you speak to him in an inside voice - refrain from yelling or shouting because again I don’t know what he has endured. However, he is unhappy in our home as well due to the other dog and cats we own. He is meant to be an only pet and requires full attention. Patience, Understanding, Love is what he truly what he needs.

Story
Esco, is a very energetic, loyal 7 year old Jack Russell and Pug Mix. We currently reside in an apartment and he has a lot of energy for such a small space. Dog dad is an amputee and Dog Mom works in another state, so having the time to give him enough walks to let some of that energy out is not enough. He has been around our son since he was born, our son is now 4 years old.
